XJ delivers the comfort and refinement of a luxury car with the responsiveness and driver involvement of a sports car.


XJ’s all-aluminium body architecture is strong, extremely rigid and very light. Riveted, and without a single welded joint, the 100 percent aluminium monocoque chassis and body structure makes this the lightest car in its class.

The excellent power-to-weight ratio improves all aspects of performance and the monocoque construction offers increased rigidity for improved handling as well as excellent safety benefits.


XJ is driven by a choice of exceptional engines built to satisfy different driving requirements but always ensuring outstanding performance. All models feature an 8-speed transmission for whisper smooth gear changes, delivering a more responsive ride and fuel economy benefits.
